Half the shore line homes where I am are missing.
Michael do you mean that you were in so deep that water came in the air cleaner? Or did the bike top over? Changed oil, what about those stinkin' filters?
Man I have empathy for you. It's a miserable feeling when you're pushing to an unknown destination for an unknown distance. I guess that's why they made whiskey. Good luck.
